Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't
connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and
Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID.
Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show
characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then
change it to the latest one.
You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of
your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties >
Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and
change it to the latest one.
Welcome to Fixya. If you forgot the code or the Network Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed to connect your iphone.
To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.
Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.
Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya
Welcome to Fixya. Im not quite sure what password you're referring to if ti's the router password or the Network Password or Network Key. Listed below are the steps on how to obtain the Network Password and the Router Password.
For you to get you Security Code or Network Key you need to access your router.To access your router just open a Browser then type 192.168.2.1, password is blank. Click on the Security under Wireless. You can change the security type of your router to WPA, WEP or you can also Disable the security. Under that you can see the Security Code or Network Key. You can also Personalize the Passphrase or Network Key so that you can easily remember it.
You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.
If you think this is helpful rate me and don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

you can log into your router. You have to be hard wired into the router. Ethernet cable. once you are hard wired connected type 192.168.1.1 in your address bar and you will get a log in screen. Hopefully you saved your login but if there isn't, just push ok and it will take you into the router screen if you never set up a user name and password, from there you push the wireless tab and look up the password. If you can't remember your log in. you may just need to reset the router by the reset button and set everything up again.
Since you forgot the security ket for the wireless network you need to access the router setup page using the a computer that is working fine with the router,
On the internet exploreer address bar of the working computer type in 192.168.1.1 , then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the username blank and password is admin. If tha admin password didn't work try typing your commonly use password.
If you're already on the setup page of the router, Just go to wireless tab then there's a wireless security sub tab there where you can find the security key that you need...
